I love the way this card turned out! I had some amazing design help from my son Jonathan. He picked the colors for the Sugar Skull. This skull can be found here at Treasured Times Rubber Stamps and Scrapbook.

I used some of my favorite crafting tool for this. I used Spellbinder dies, Whimsy Stamp Dies and flowers by Wild Orchard. Some heres and theres from my stash and that was it. I have some more pictures from some details:
